I need help finding information on my Owens' line from Darke County, Ohio. I have a William Owens who was born about 1847. He shows up in the 1850 census as 3 years old. The census record is for Harrison Township, Darke County, Ohio. His parents were James age 31 and Anna age 38 according to the census and it also had his grandparents(presumed) listed living with them; Samuel age 73 and Isabel Owens age 71. William married Amanda Horn who was the daughter of Balser and Nancy Horn, also from Darke County. I have some info on the Horns. They are buried in Hollandsburg Cemetery. William's wife Amanda remarried (presumingly after he died) to a Sausser and she is buried in Hollandsburg Cemetery by herself as Amanda M. Sausser 1848-1936. I have looked through a set of Darke County Cemetery Inscriptions (I may have overlooked them) and I was unable to find: William Owens Born about 1847 , James Owens born about 1819, and James' wife Anna born about 1812, Samuel Owens born about 1777, Isabel Owens born about 1779. If anyone has any information, I would love to hear from them.
